No. 10 Ladycats open Class 5A playoffs against Denison today at Denton High School

Aledo senior hitter Maddie Goings (13) elevates before sending down a kill in a recent match. The Ladycats will open the Class 5A playoffs against Denison. The first serve will be at 7 p.m. today at Denton High School.

Entering the Class 5A playoffs as District 6-5A’s top seed, the state-ranked No. 10 Aledo Ladycats will face Denison at 7 p.m. today at Denton High School in a Region I bi-district playoff match.

The Ladycats, co-champions of 6-5A, bring a 35-8 record into the match. Denison, at 24-13, is the fourth-place team from District 5-5A.

Ladycats head coach Kathy Goings said playing at a high level on defense is the first priority in advancing in the playoffs.

“Our team is doing better on defense,” Goings said, “but I think as we continue this playoff run we are going to have to continue to tighten our defense.

“Our front row is doing much better on blocking; and they are hitting the ball extremely well right now.”

Goings feels having a three-year starter at setter in senior Erin Weiss is a distinct advantage in the playoffs.

“Erin is doing a great job moving the ball faster and spreading it out on the offensive side,” Goings said. “She is also doing a good job defensively.”

The winner of the match will advance to the area round and face the winner of the Western Hills/Richland bi-district match.
